Holden Ute Passenger Vehicles

Since Holden released the first FX utility in 1948, the ute has gone on to become Australia's favourite "tradie" vehicle. Modern Holden utes are not only functional, but also comfortable and fast, with high-performance six-cylinder engines and six-speed V8s. In addition to their single-cab models, Holden also makes dual-cab utes that are ideal for transporting passengers, such as workmates and family.

Why Should I Buy a Ute?

Utes are as transport vehicles with plenty of room in the tray to store construction tools, building materials or transport furniture from A to B. You can find Holden ute manual passenger vehicles, as well as Holden ute automatic passenger vehicles.

  • While some station wagons may offer a similar boot storage capacity, utes can carry goods that may have a stench, with a quick hosing of the tray all that you need to clean them.
  • Utes with vinyl floors and hard-wearing seats are just as easy to clean, making them ideal for those working in dirty conditions.
  • Modern utes now come equipped with many of the accessories of luxury cars, meaning you don't have to compromise on comfort or features.

Should I Buy From a Dealer or Privately?

You can purchase secondhand Holden utes through private sellers or dealerships, both of which have their advantages and disadvantages.

  • If you want to be able to trade in your old car, look for dealer Holden ute passenger vehicles.
  • Private seller Holden ute passenger vehicles may be slightly cheaper, but you'll need to do your own research when it comes to money owing on the vehicle and its mechanical condition.
  • If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is, so you should always get the vehicle checked by a mechanic that you personally trust.

Which Questions Should I Ask Before Purchase?

Buying a new car can be a big investment, so don't be afraid to ask plenty of questions to make sure you're making the right decision.

  • Check how many owners the vehicle had previously, and that the mileage is accurate.
  • Ask how much it costs to fill the tank with petrol and whether the car had any work done on it recently.
  • Always check that the vehicle registration and insurance is current for your test drive.
